It is very frustrating. I went to my obgyn and he did a whole round of hormonal testing on me and found that my dhea was low. I did some research and found that taking steroids can actually deplete your dhea levels. I don't know if this was the case for me as I had quite taking them about
6 months prior to the testing. In doing the research, I also found that dhea is suppose to help people with UC. I'm not quite sure if this is true, but it's definitely not helping my fatigue. I was excited because dhea is supposed to help energy level, mood and sex drive. I've been on the dhea for about
1 1/2 months.
